Purchase Order Terms and Conditions

These Purchase Order Terms and Conditions (these “Terms and Conditions”) are incorporated into each Purchase Order, which makes reference to these Terms and Conditions, issued by Merrimack Manufacturing LLC (“MERRIMACK”) to any vendor or other supplier of goods and/or services (“Vendor”). By accepting any such Purchase Order or providing goods or services in response to any such Purchase Order, Vendor agrees to these Terms and Conditions. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and Conditions and a term on the face of the Purchase Order, the term on the face of the Purchase Order controls.

  8. Except as necessary to deliver goods or services to MERRIMACK under the Purchase Order, Vendor shall neither use nor disclose to any third party any confidential information of MERRIMACK that may be communicated to Vendor.

  9. Unless MERRIMACK gives prior written consent, Vendor shall neither assign any of its rights nor delegate any of its duties under the Purchase Order.
  10. Vendor shall invoice MERRIMACK for goods after delivery and for services after the services are rendered. MERRIMACK shall pay Vendor’s invoice within thirty (30) days.

MERRIMACK shall have no liability to Vendor for any damages (whether based on any claim of breach of contract, any tort claim, any indemnity claim, or any other cause of action) in excess of the prices stated on the Purchase Order for services actually rendered to MERRIMACK or goods actually received by MERRIMACK.
  14. The Purchase Order and these Terms and Conditions are the entire agreement between Vendor and MERRIMACK and may only be amended by a written agreement signed by Vendor and MERRIMACK.

Without limiting the foregoing, MERRIMACK rejects all terms stated on any Vendor quotation, order acceptance, or other Vendor form.
